Aaron Teegardin



Aaron Teegardin, was born in Franklin Township, Westmoreland

county, Pennsylvania, February 23, 1810. When about 1 year of age, his father emigrated, with his family, to Ohio, arriving in

Madison township, in April of that year. His father was George

Teegardin, and his mother, Christine Brobst Teegardin.

On their arrival, Mr. Teegardin located his family on one hundred and sixty acres of land, in section twenty-three. The children of

George and Christine Teegardin were: Barbara, John, Ann,

Aaron and Mary.


Aaron Teegardin,  when a boy, attended such schools as the

country then afforded, they being sustained by private subscription.

His school education was necessarily very limited, and was

mostly confined to a few months during the winter, after he

became an age when his help in the necessary work of the

farm was valuable. He worked hard, as did even the boys,

in those days, at log rolling, raisings, clearing the forest,

and raising the necessary food for subsistence,

his only recreation being fox hunting, in the winter, and such

gatherings of the young people of the neighborhood

as took place.


In March, 1883, he was married to Sarah Hoy. After marriage

they moved into a hewed-log house, which still stands near the

present residence. Here they lived, and here were their

children born, who were as follows: Ephraim, who was born

December 27, 1934, and was married to Nancy Sharp, and

now lives in Miami county, Indiana: Mahala remains at home;

Henry was born April 16, 1841 and died August 1863,

at Boise City, on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains,

where he had gone in search of his fortune in the gold mines;

John married Harriet Hoffhine, and lives on section thirty-one;

Mary lives at home; Augustus owns property in section

seventeen, but lives at home; George Philip married

Amelia Hoffhine, and lives on the home farm; Levi married

Rosetta Pfleeger, and lives on the home farm; one child,

the second, died in infancy.


In 1850 they built their present substantial farm dwelling,

near the log house that had for so long been their home.

A representation of the home,  together with portraits of

Mr. and Mrs. Teegardin, appear in connection

with this sketch.


Mr. Teegardin was, for more then twenty years, a trustee

of his township. During that time the old state militia law was

in force, he held the offices of lieutenant, captain, major, in

that organization, serving in these different offices some

eight to ten years. He also held the office of justice of the peace

1844 to 1847.


He has filled a father's place in his care for the orphaned

children of his brothers and sisters, all of whom are now

grown to manhood and womanhood.
